社会福祉法人 善光会

Message from the Founder

 At Social Welfare Corporation Zenkoukai, in order to bring reality to the principle of the company I represent, Seequedge Group, which is “profit gained from social activities must be kept within that society”; the company was established through contributions by Seequedge Co. (currently named Seequedge Investment Co.).

 Especially because social contributions for nursery business operations was a long dream held by our company’s past father (founder of Seek Edge, Tatsumi Shirai) .

 Social Welfare Corporation Zenkoukai created Santafe Garden Hills, one of Japan’s largest Composite Welfare Facility to bring reality to our long-held desire. This was an important first step for Zenkoukai.

 Social Welfare Corporation Zenkoukai focuses on bringing innovation to the nursery welfare world by considering what social contributions really mean.

 In today’s nursery welfare world, especially special nursing homes for the elderly run by social welfare corporates that are public welfare corporates do not operate under competition principles. Therefore, there are a lot of inefficiencies and doesn’t meet facility operation standards.

 Without facing competition like private companies, there won’t be systems for changes in company owners nor criticism as an inefficient company. Thus, it becomes a structure where the company doesn’t think critically about providing the optimal service for its customers.

 Our ability to provide new or better services is limited to the funds we are able to collect.

 As Zenkoukai, we want to bring good competition, excellent nursery operations and implement new financial technologies as a big movement towards removing these inefficiencies. An exaggeration will be to become a reformer of the entire nursing world by providing the optimal services for our customers.
